Founded on a strict qualification process for both buyers and suppliers, ALTM ensures bringing together only the very best in the luxury travel community in an exclusive private club-like environment.

ALTM attendees are also invited to the ALTM Opening Conference, boasting industry expert speakers, sharing luxury travel insights and foresights. Following the conference, participants are further invited to one of many unique networking functions, with leading luxury providers.

The unrivaled ALTM Pre-Scheduled Appointment and Online Diary program allows members to meet with their choice of up to 69 buyers or suppliers in 15-minute, face-to-face meetings, maximizing the use of their time at the show.

At the heart of ALTM’s success is its dedication to seeking out the finest VIP luxury travel buyers, from across the breadth of the region who, in order to secure their place among Asia-Pacific’s buying elite, must have a proven track record with international luxury travel providers and planned future business to place with ALTM suppliers.

Debbie Joslin, group exhibition director, said: “The Asia Pacific region is a wide and varied community with dense areas of high-net worth individuals in some of the regions most dynamic cities.”

On securing a place among the elite at the 2010 event, Debbie commented: “We are always interested in new buyers, planners, and luxury travel suppliers, however, to apply, they must undergo a strict qualification process.

“We hope that buyers find that ALTM facilitates a huge proportion of their annual networking with international suppliers, servicing their international business needs. Similarly from a supplier perspective, ALTM provides an unparalleled platform for those looking to grow their business into the Asian Pacific region.”

The 400+ vetted suppliers will cover the complete range of luxury travel at ALTM, from ultra-luxurious destinations to elite transportation and much more, with many new additions to the 2010 line-up. Some of the new exhibitors for 2010 include Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, and China’s newest icon, Pangu, the 7-star hotel in Beijing.

ALTM also welcomes back a host of returning exhibitors from 2008 who have recognized the vital role ALTM plays in their business development for 2010, including Abercrombie & Kent, Maybourne Hotel Group, &Beyond, and Wilderness Safaris.
